We have the wrong impression of our school system. Yes, our schools have gone to pot. At one time, when comparing schools, we were ranked No. 1 in the world. Now, due to federal intervention, we are way down the list. You should be aware of the factors that give this impression.
No other country has as diverse a population equaled as ours. And a high number of dropouts are minority students. Contrary to the government’s supposition, one shoe size does not fit all.
